their secret sauce that's more important than the polling is that mr. romney is winning independents. so there. romney has this thing in the bag. carl rove, for the republicans this year, he took to "the wall street journal" this week to patiently explain to the people who don't understand that these numbers that look so bad for mr. romney do not matter or they are wrong. or they are wrong and they don't noe matter. because he says democrats are not winning early voting by enough. and he says the polls make assumptions about turnout that he describes as absurd. it also describes some stuff that makes him believe romney is going to win like crowd size and closing arguments. that shows that mitt romney is totally going to win this thing. both are trying to convince the country it's obvious they are going to win. it's worth listening to the arguments and checking to see if the arguments are based in good sense. but honestly, it's also worth recognizing that every campaign on both sides does this every time. for example, here is how this particular phenomenon looked the day before the election in
. did you detect, perhaps, a subtle dig on mr. romney who spent today going against the guidelines established by the red cross and holding a campaign rally in ohio that was dressed up like a charity drive collecting food and other supplies when the red cross expressly asked people not to do that? >> well, what i think the president was doing was being commander in chief, and he continues to distinguish himself as someone who is focused on the needs of everyday americans, and this is more important to him even than the presidency. that's why he's going to be traveling to the site personally. that's why he had multiple personal conversations with the governor of new jersey. i think that this is yet another moment where you see the clear, striking difference between a president who has a heart for the american people and someone who simply wants to be president of the united states. >> indeed. professor peterson? >> i would agree. i mean, it's xration thcompassi shows through in times like these. it's humanity that shows through in times like these and it just seems clear that the pr
than two feet possible. >> seems unbelievable. a couple minutes before we hear from mr. romney. i want to ask you quickly. they're calls this a storm that could be one of historic proportions, and something that is array event. >> basically because it's just so large. the span is 1,000 miles from the northern end to the southern end. so we're going to be feeling impact widespread. talk about snow also possible with the storm system. and tropical impact, and something we have been noting is that the pressure has been dropping. what that means is that sandy is intense -- intensifying, and we expect it to transition. >> we want to take you out to pensacola, florida, where governor mitt romney is about to walk out and greet the thousands of supporters who gathered to hear him speak. they're wrapping up a video that was introduced by senator rubio there, talking about the governor's accomplishments and his hopes for his -- for presidency under mitt romney, and as we have been telling you, it is early voting today in florida. the first day of early voting. just ten days out until election da
points. but if you go to real clear politics and look at the average, mr. romney is up by half a point. mitt romney will be in virginia today live on c-span. brian moran, when you expect your candidate to return to the state? guest: he will be hero -- be here saturday and he has been here over and over. prince william, loudoun. coming again to prince william saturday night. which is nice. it is a spillover from being a battleground state. we have all the candidates coming in on a regular basis so fellow virginians get to see and hear from the candidates. of course, we have to put up with all of the television ads as well. but it is fun to have all the candidates in and it is important for virginians to hear from him. the president is working diligently to make sure the communities struck by sandy in new jersey and new york, working in a bipartisan way with governor chris christie from new jersey in surveying the damage. that is where government works, fema, a program governor romney called for eliminating during the republican debate -- guest: not all, absolutely false. -- governor rom
't extend to president obama. rhetoric is getting increasingly tough. mr. romney saying it lacks to agenda and amounts to stagnation. he argues that he and paul ryan will bring about bold changes. yesterday he gave a big speech that was the beginning of what constitutes a closing argument when you are still yesterday, 11 days, now 10 days away from election day. look for more attempts to shorten the rhetoric and sharpen the hits as they move closer to the election day. >> gregg: what a visual on a campaign bus heading to kissimmee. thanks. >> jamie: president obama making a campaign stop in a crucial battleground state of new hampshire. folk singer james carroll warming up the crowd gave a wide ranging speech outlining his will promise for the next five years. >> the unemployment rate is falling, manufacturing coming back to our shores. our assembly lines are humming again. housing prices are starting to pick up. housing starts are on the move. we've got a lot of work to do but new hampshire is country has come too far for us to turn back now. >> jamie: he won new hampshire by nine percent
and a half lull for the sandy disaster. mr. romney has three events here in florida, a key battleground state where the polls continue to tighten. we've been telling everybody for year-and-a-half this is likely to end up close in a number of key battleground states as well as national polls. the national polls have been within the margin literally for weeks. in florida the latest quinnepiac survey, president is up two points. well within the margin and basically reflection of rcp average which shows romney up a point. it is all so close because it doesn't mean heck of a lot in terms of differences. go to virginia where a state mr. romney is closing the gap and says president obama is up two points in the quinnepiac poll, but there is the average from "real clear politics" survey says mr. romney is leading half a point. then there is ohio. ohio the romney campaign acknowledges it will be a battle down to the very last minute and they have been trailing in some polls. quinnepiac poll has romney down five points but the "real clear politics" average is 2.4 suggesting it is very, very close. the
with mitt romney in the days to come. >> we hear that perhaps mr. romney may do some storm-related events. is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey to tour some of the damage with you? >> i have no idea nor am i the least bit concerned or interested. i have 2.4 million people out of power. i have devastation on the shore, floods in the northern part of my state. if you think i give a damn about presidential politics, then you don't know me. >> this storm is a wakeup call to those conservatives who want to leave disaster relief up to the states. turn it over to them. to those who want to privatize everything. the state of new jersey is overwhelmed. they don't have enough resources. the state's resources aren't enough to help those without power, to help those flooded out of their home. you need a total effort across the country in a crisis like this. that's why there is a federal government. federal and local governments working together is the successful formula for the state of new jersey. it's going to take time. but to turn it over to the states and say you're
bless you, god bless america and god bless the next first lady of the united states, mrs. ann romney. ♪ >> i'm so touched backstage listening to this extraordinary woman. to be able to stand next to a woman like her and know that she and jack represent so much of what we love about america. they are such wonderful examples to us. it really brought tears to my eyes thinking about how amazing it is. to think anyone like that would even know who we are because i have add mired jack all of my life and add mired his way of living. his way of achieving his greatness in so many areas outside of the golf course. and i know -- [applause] i know ohio is their home state and this is where so many of you folks know them and love them. and as so many americans across the country admire and respect them. i'm also humbled to be on this stage with so many extraordinary women. and there's a few men. this is great. jane mentioned we're on the girl's bus. i really like rolling with the girls let me just tell you will right now. i've had a great time with cindy mccain, she was with me in virgi
to eliminate it. at a republican primary debate last year, mr. romney was asked whether emergency management was a function that should be returned to the states. he not only agreed, he went further. mr. romney not only believes that states acting independently can handle the response to a vast east coast storm better than washington, but that companies can do an even better job. he said it was immoral for the federal government to do all these things if it means increasing the debt. many don't like the idea of free aid for poor people or think people should pay for their bad decisions, which this week includes living on the east coast. >> what do you want me to say? >> nothing. i really don't want you to say anything. >> no, i want to say something. >> okay. go ahead and say something. >> that's absolutely ridiculous. >> okay. >> i think what mitt romney is absolutely ridiculous. >> oh. okay. >> this is what happens, though, when you're afraid to go after medicare, medicaid and social security and defense spending and reform taxes to bring more revenue to the federal government, you have to
across the aisle in a bipartisan way and got things done. >> steve: okay. mr. romney has talked about that, how he, you saw him at the debates talking about it, 75, 80% democrats, versus him, the lone republican governor. >> eric: fox news had a poll two nights ago that came out and found that 60% of people polled were interested in the economy and fiscal issues as their most important issues. mr. baker is on target with that. >> gretchen: let's talk about that working across the aisle. here is mitt romney. >> you want to see four more years with washington in gridlock? >> no. >> look, i know that the president wants to see four more years and that's his chant, four more years, four more years. our chant is this: five more days. all right [ cheers and applause ] by the way, i think i'll ask the leader, leader cantor, when was the last time you met with the president on the economy and jobs and the budget? he says almost a year. >> steve: meanwhile, it seems like the campaign has been going on for almost a year, actually longer. now it's down to not five days. it's four days. >> eric:
and the president off the campaign trail today, although we hear that perhaps he's going to -- mr. romney may do some storm-related events. is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey to tour some of the damage with you? >> i have no idea, nor am i the least bit concerned or interested. i've got a job to do here in new jersey that's much bigger than presidential politics and i could care less about any of that stuff. i have a job to do. i've got 2.4 million people out of power. i've got devastation on the shore. i've got floods in the northern part of my state. if you think right now i give a damn about presidential politics, then you don't know me. >> brian: i got to ask you, do you have enough firefighters and rescue people? are you asking for help from other states at this point if people are watching electric a state that's not affected, can they -- is there a place for them to go if they have the skills you need? >> sure. we are getting a lot of help. governor daniels from indiana sent us 22 fully staffed ambulances to help us move folks out of hospitals. they needed
in pittsburgh just one year ago -- one week ago. mrs. romney has been here. why are they not spending money here? i don't know. i'm not privy. host: josh shapiro, not much of the president or vice president since the convention. guest: have been preparing for victory for more than a year. 50 field offices, thousands of volunteers going around knocking on doors, making phone calls. we are a bottom-up campaign. this will be one on the field in election day. i think the president as an organization second to none that i'm proud to be associated with. i'm confident we will have a victory on november 6th. host: josh shapiro, you're from the philadelphia area. bloomberg has a number of key counties to look at, among them chester, a lehigh, and others. why are these so critical to the campaign in november? guest: chair gleason will agree that the swing areas likely in the suburbs. montgomery county, that represent on the board of commissioners, is the largest among them. when you look at how that area has swung in past elections, that determines the winner. if you look at the poll that came out today,
tended to campaign most heavily in the western part of the state. for example, mr. romney has made several appearances in the western part of the state but has not made any appearances in the eastern part of the state. president obama has made quite a few appearances in the eastern part of the state but not recently. that is also true of michelle obama and vice president joe biden. they tend to campaign more in the eastern part of the state in the research triangle where their political strength has been. host: it has been mentioned the president has not been in north carolina since the convention. are people taking notice of that? guest: oh, yes, except for the convention, the president has not campaigned in north carolina since april. we have not really seen the principles here very much at all. governor romney was here a few weeks back and made an appearance in asheville but that was mainly to have a visit with billy graham which was important. it was an important message to send to religious conservatives that it was ok for them to vote for a mormon. aside from that, governor r
. it's great to be with you. >> steve: great to have you. so after a couple of days that mr. romney has for the most part taken off due to the circumstances of the big storm here in the northeast, it's game on again today. he's going to be traveling with you and also former governor bush and marco rubio and what is his message to florida? >> i think his message is the same one he's been talking about for a long time. that's jobs and the economy and how to get this country moving again. there are a lot of people down here in florida who are hurting. their homes are upside down and their loans, they can't find work. there is 820,000 floridans out of work, more who have stopped looking for work. so it's about how to get job creators back into the game of creating jobs. you do that by lower taxes, lower regulations, and putting our faith and trust back into the people of the state of florida and this country instead of more and more government. that's exactly what mitt romney has been talking about. if i could real quick, i want to let everyone know that here in florida, our hearts and pray
